Particle Tracing for Fluid Flow Blog Posts
How to Compute Residence Time in Flow Models with COMSOL®
You can compute residence time in flow problems using the Particle Tracing Module. Get the details in this blog post.
How to Analyze Turbomolecular Pumps with COMSOL Multiphysics®
Modeling gas flow in a turbomolecular pump calls for specialized numerical methods, because at such low pressures, the gas molecules rarely collide with each other.
What Formulation Should I Use for Particle Tracing in Fluids?
The COMSOL® software gives you 4 equation formulation options when modeling particle tracing in fluids: Newtonian; Newtonian, first order; Newtonian, ignore inertial terms; and Massless.
Speeding Up DNA Separation in a Microchannel via Simulation
DNA separation takes a long time using traditional methods. Now, researchers from the Missouri University of Science and Technology have found a faster way to get the job done.
Keynote Video: Designing Improved Heart Pumps with Simulation
Abbott Laboratories designed “the most complex machine ever implanted into a human being” — an LVAD for heart failure patients — using multiphysics modeling. The result? Saved lives.
Evaluating Static Mixer Performance with a Simulation App
In this blog post, we go over the setup of an app designed to quantitatively and qualitatively analyze the performance of a static mixer using the Particle Tracing Module.
Preventing Airborne Infection with CFD Modeling
Healthcare-associated infections affect millions of people around the globe. Airborne bacteria is one cause of patient infections that can be prevented with efficient ventilation system designs.
How can you use an electric field to control the movement of electrically neutral particles? This may sound impossible, but in this blog entry, we will see that the phenomenon of dielectrophoresis (DEP) can do the trick. We will learn how DEP can be applied to particle separation and demonstrate a very easy-to-use biomedical simulation app that is created with the Application Builder and run with COMSOL Server™.
